location on the right side of Colchester in the country but not too far to access the city, picturesque areas of Wivenhoe and access to Clacton in the East is easy from here. Very accommodating, spotlessly clean, breakfast all served on Staffordshire (Pheasant) ware and cost an extra £9 but well worth it .... all in room amenities big bath,...

Stayed with my other half for one night in The Retreat on 28.8.16 for a much-needed break. The suite is furnished and decorated to a high standard of comfort and the owner has thought of everything you could possibly need. And the nicest breakfast we've ever had. We loved everything about it and left well-rested. Perfect.

Thank Hodgeheg1
